Back home, my mom grows chinese chives in her garden, so they are almost always readily available for her to use to make a stir fried chive dish, or chive dumplings or chive eggs.

Chinese chives are also known as garlic chives.  Lately I’ve been craving chive eggs, and lucky for me, chives were on sale at Ranch 99.  So I purchased a bunch of chives.  Chive eggs are simple to make and a refreshing change to the normal egg cooking options.

1.  Dice the chives into small pieces, a little less than a centimeter long.

2.  Mix raw egg in a bowl, until egg mixture is completely yellow.

3.  Add a tiny pinch of salt to the egg, and add in chives.  For every large egg, use approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons of chopped chives.  Stir chives and mix with egg.

4.  Cook egg(s) in a frying pan until done.

My chive pieces were a bit longer than I wanted them to be for these eggs because I was in a bit of a rush.

    I love Chinese chive eggs! My mom used to make this for me all the time. I’ll have to show the hubby your picture since he always thought scrambled eggs with chives an odd combination.

    My mom makes it all the time too! I wish I had a chive plant in my backyard so I could make it whenever I feel like it. I think chive and eggs is one of my favorite ways to eat chives.

    I’ve been meaning to try growing them in a pot, just haven’t gotten around to it. I saw potted chives at Home Depot this year but didn’t get them since I’m growing peppers this season. Maybe next season.

    I tried doing it once; got a pot from Home Depot. Unfortunately, due to lack of lighting at my place, it didn’t work out. Boyfriend refers to the patio as the “graveyard of plants.”
